Infinity Dreams Award

Lookie here… it’s another bonus post!

I was nominated by Kaui From Maui for the Infinity Dreams Award. Thanks! This is the 2nd time in the last couple weeks she’s nominated me for a blogger award!

As always, this things have “rules”:

1. Thank and follow the blog that nominated you.
2. Tell us 11 facts about yourself.
3. Answer the questions that were set for you to answer.
4. Nominate 11 bloggers and set questions for them.

 

So here are 11 random facts about me (I hope none of these are repeats):

1. I’m originally from Michigan. I moved to Florida a little over 15 years ago and I love it. A lot of crazy happens here, but… no snow!

2. I’m a BIG Star Wars fan and can’t wait for Episode VII to come out later this year.

3. I have a probably unhealthy obsession with shoes. My closet could probably pass for the back room of a shoe store.

4. I’ve never been stung by a bee, wasp, hornet…. any of those nasty stinging bugs.

5. I’ve also never broken any bones in my body, which is amazing considering the number of times I’ve smacked my toes on table legs and the like.

6. My all-time favorite TV show is I Love Lucy. It’s a classic and is as funny today as it was back in the 50s.

7. I majorly SUCK at painting my own nails. I always get it all over my cuticles and skin. I’m trying to get better at it though, but it’s slow going.

8. I love baseball and while I grew up a Detroit Tigers fan (since I lived in Michigan), my favorite team now is the Tampa Bay Rays (though the Tigers are my 2nd favorite now).

9. I don’t have kids and I don’t want any (getting too old for that nonsense anyway). My cats are my “kids”.

10. I love to read, but I still buy physical books. I have no interest in an e-reader like a Kindle.

11. My favorite comedian is Robin Williams. He was freaking hilarious. My 2nd favorite is Eddie Izzard.

 

Here are the questions Kaui had for me:

1. Do you listen to music when you put on your makeup?
Not usually. It’s usually morning, so I’m just trying to keep my brain from going back to sleep and focus on the task at hand.

2. If you could travel anywhere with all expenses paid, where would you go? Pick only one place.
This? Easy. Japan! I’d go to Tokyo Disney, the Studio Ghibli Museum, all sorts of other theme parks around the country, visit the world-famous fish market & auction in Tokyo…

3. What would you buy with $1,000?
Clothes. Makeup. Shoes. Something nice for my boyfriend.

4. Who has the biggest impact on your life?
My mom. I miss her.

5. Do you have any tattoos? If not, do you want one?
Don’t have any and don’t want any.

6. Why did you start blogging?
I started watching a bunch of beauty YouTubers last year and suddenly thought, “Hey I can do this too!” But I’m awful on camera and I have no patience for video editing. But I’ve always had strong writing skills, so I decided to start a written blog… and here I am!

7. What instantly puts a smile on your face?
It depends. Sometimes it’s the cats. Sometimes my boyfriend. Don’t discount the little things. Sometimes it’s the most stupid and trivial thing will make me insanely happy.

8. If you could be best friends with a celebrity, who would you choose?
Ugh… I don’t know! Maybe… RuPaul? I’m totally fascinated with drag queens and Ru is just so freaking amazing. Plus we can share makeup tips and stuff!

9. If you could change a law, which one would it be?
I’d make marriage equality legal all around the world. Love is love, you know? Love knows no color or gender. If you don’t like gay marriage… then don’t marry a gay person. Simple as that.

10. Are you concerned about ISIS?
To a point. The media of course always blows a lot of this stuff out of proportion though.

11. What inspires you to do what you do?
I never know what might inspire me, so it varies.

The 15 Questions Tag

Hi beauties! Bonus Thursday post!

 

I got tagged by awesome Katie over at Plus+ Beauty Blog to do the 15 Questions Tag. So without further ado…

 

1. What do you think you can do but can’t?

Whistle. I try and try but nothing ever comes out.

 

2. What’s a difficult word for you to pronounce? 

I usually don’t find many words hard for me to pronounce, but I’m trying to teach myself some basic Japanese words and phrases and some of them can be a little tricky.

 

3. What are your favorite TV shows from your childhood?

I Love Lucy (grew up watching this show and it’s still my all-time favorite), Facts Of Life, Silver Spoons, Diff’rent Strokes, Magnum PI, The Wonderful World of Disney (watched this every Sunday night)… can you tell I grew up in the 80s?

 

4. What are your virtues and vices?

Virtues? I’m friendly and honest. And I love to make people laugh. And for Vices? I sometimes get too upset over things I can’t control. And I definitely swear more than I probably should… but at the same time, swearing is fun! Oh and people who flake. That drives me up the freaking wall.

 

5. What’s more important: love, fame, power, or money?

Love. But in today’s world, I’m not going to lie… it’s all about power.

 

6. If you could live in any era/time period, when would it be and why?

I’d want to back to the 70s & 80s and experience the things I was too young to when I was growing up during those times.

 

7. If you had to redo your entire wardrobe with 2 stores, what would they be and why?

That would have to be H&M – because I like a lot of what they sell and their prices are great; and Kohl’s – because half of my wardrobe is already from there. I love the stuff they carry and they always have great sales.

 

8. Can you recall what you were doing a year ago on this day?

Not entirely, but I do remember being a bit in shock because I learned a friend of mine had committed suicide the day before.

 

9. Do you have reoccurring dreams? If so, explain?

If I do, I don’t remember them. I hardly ever remember my dreams, which is just as well because they’re usually a hot, jumbled, incoherent mess. I’ll usually wake up thinking, “WTF was that?!”

 

10. What’s your horoscope?

Leo. And in Lunar horoscope I was born in the Year of the Tiger. Cats all around!

 

11.  What does your dream bedroom look like?

It would be big. I’d have a king size bed, plushy carpet and a gigantic walk-in closet with its own beauty room attached.

 

12. What position do you sleep in?

Usually my side, but sometimes my stomach (much to the dismay of my lower back).

 

13. What are your all time favorite films?

My all-time favorite is Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. I know that movie frontwards and backwards. If I’m channel surfing and I come across even the last 15 minutes of that movie, I’ll stop and watch it. Other favorites are The Goonies, Breakfast Club, Pretty In Pink, Xanadu (my guilty pleasure), the original Star Wars trilogy (the theatrical releases, not the bastardized Special Editions), Moulin Rouge, That Thing You Do (a friend of mine in California & I will randomly text each other lines from the movie and then text the next line back – because we’re dorks), Monty Python & the Holy Grail, Goldfinger (best Bond film ever), Major League, The Avengers, the Iron Man & Captain America films…. I could go on forever with this one so I’ll just stop here.

 

14. What makeup are you currently wearing?
